Well with the exception of a few mods everything went really well. The system is up and running and keeping a steady ph of 7.5 thanks to the monitor. As stated in other threads my tap is 7.6 and aged water is 8.3. I tried changing water with aged and lost a couple of fish. Also tried turning CO2 off at night and lost a few more. I guess the fish can't handle that big a swing in ph so will leave the CO2 on from this point forward. I'm really impressed with how easy this was. I was really terrified to try this and to be honest would have never done it without the ph monitor. Now I can start stocking my tank.
